eglowworm
The glowworm is seen in the story. In the story, you can point to the glowworm at the side of the road. You can hear the Slovenian poet say, "Look, it's a glowworm. It brings happiness. Use it." However, it is not the figure in the story, or even the story itself. It is the fact of the story existing.

Once a young woman said to me, “How does it feel to be a man?”
And I replied, “My dear, I am not so sure.” Then she said, “Well, aren’t you a man?”
And this time I responded, “I view gender as a beautiful animal that people often take for a walk on a leash and might enter into some odd contest… in hopes of winning a strange prize.”
My dear, a better question for Hafiz would have been, “How does it feel to be a heart?” For all I know is love, and I now find my heart infinite, and everywhere.
~ Hafiz, interpreted by Daniel Ladinsky

Jellyfish Lake in Palau. Apparently the jellies have lost their ability to sting because of lack of predators in the lake and you can swim with them!

BUCKET LIST.

WAIT BUT THAT’S NOT EVEN THE COOLEST PART: These jellyfish carry small populations of algae inside their bodies and derive much of their nutrition from the sugars that the algae produce. The jellyfish follow the sun across the lake each day and rotate continuously, so that the algae are always getting maximum sunlight exposure for photosynthesis. Then at night they dive to deeper parts of the lake so the algae can absorb nitrogen. It’s one of the best examples of endosymbiosis in action and it’s KICKASS.

"We are so much more than we give ourselves credit for. Creation is so much more than we let ourselves remember. We are born from greatness. We come from sacred, mysterious darkness infused with a luminous luster. We are the product of millions of molecules in creative cooperation. We are miracles walking around unaware of our inheritance. We spend more time worrying about what we don’t have than pondering our potential."
